The Art of Dressing the Part

Posted in Fashion
on November 28, 2016

img_1024Being that I’m only a little over a year away from graduation, I’ve finally had to come to terms with the fact that it’s time for me to start adulting… (I’m crying too.)

With becoming a REAL grown-up comes having professional grown-up clothes. I struggled a lot the past few years at career fairs searching for internship because I’ve always thought of business professional attire as being stuffy, itchy, and boring- but it really doesn’t have to be! There are actually a ton of ways to style business professional clothes by incorporating your own style without looking boring. I’m hoping to share a few of my business-professional/business casual outfit ideas with y’all, because I know sometimes I need some inspiration too!

 

I found this dress at TopShop and paired some super simple black pieces with gold accents to go with it. When it comes to business wear, my rule-to-live-by is keep it simple. I usually try and stick to one focus color, and two neutrals to complement it. This way nothing looks to busy & it makes it so much easier to pair outerwear.

I love this pair of heels to go with dresses when your toes want a break from being crammed into a pair of pumps. Plus, I wear these all the time with casual date outfits too- they’re so versatile, it’s such an essential!

I also LOVE this Tory Burch bag- it comes with a detachable strap, so you can wear it as a clutch or a crossbody bag. I personally think carrying it as a clutch totally transforms the look. If you find a bag that has a detachable strap, you basically have a two-in-one!

Like I said, it’s important to keep it simple! I paired this outfit with two delicate gold bracelets- they add a nice touch without being too much.

Hopefully this outfit gave you some inspiration- let me know what you think!

Fall Essentials Every Girl Needs

Posted in Fashion
on September 29, 2016

Hello everyone!!

As the leaves finally start changing color and hopefully the temperatures start dropping wherever you are in the world (wish I could say the same here in Texas but unfortunately we suffer almost 100 degree weather until basically halfway through October,) I wanted to share with y’all some of my favorite style pieces that are staples in my wardrobe almost every fall, but with a few trendy styles that are in for this coming season. Let me know what some of your fall essentials are, I’d love to get some inspiration from y’all!

1.) Denim Shirt

Denim button-downs are honestly a staple for any time of year, not just fall! They’re super easy to work with, and great for layering when the weather gets a little chillier. I find that a medium-wash denim tends to look a little more classic, but you could always get a light wash or dark wash. I love them all! Plus, super easy to dress down a more dressy outfit just by throwing it on and adding some accessories. Also looks so effortless with a pair of black jeans and throwing on sunglasses. So cute!

Denim button-down: TopShop (I couldn’t find my exact one, but this one would work great!)

Sunglasses: Prada

Ring: Tiffany & Co.

Necklace: Kendra Scott

2.) Cold Shoulder Blouse

These are so trendy right now, and I’m the first to admit that I think cold shoulder/cutout tops are so modest yet sexy and I LOVE THEM. Perfect to throw on in the fall, when the temperature starts to drop but it’s still in the 70s-80s and not quite sweater weather yet.

Cold Shoulder Blouse: Target – I love the embroidering along the top, and I found it at Target so it was super inexpensive! Y’all know I love shopping at Target! It also comes in 2 colors, but I thought the black looked a little better on me.

3. Bomber Jacket

I’ve honestly never been a huge fan of varsity-style bomber jackets, but I’ve seen a lot more this season that are so simple and chic. I’m a huge fan of layering, and bomber jackets are perfect for just that. If you get one in a neutral color, you can easily pair it with some of your more summery pieces and still look totally appropriate.

Bomber Jacket: Target

*Carli Bybel x Missguided also has one that’s super cute!! And only $48, what a steal

Apple Watch

4.) Comfy Hoodie

I love comfort just as much as the next girl, so this hoodie is a must-have. They can look super effortless with just a pair of black denim jeans, or casual with a pair of athletic leggings. I wear mine a lot with just a pair of Lululemon leggings and my Adidas Superstars- super easy, cute, and SO comfortable! Find a nice, soft hoodie and I can guarantee you’ll want to lounge in it every day. Mine is from Zara, but I don’t think they sell it anymore, sorry!

5.) Neutral Tote

I love wearing tote bags because you can bring every single thing you could possibly need and have extra room for more. I got mine this summer and haven’t stopped carrying it since!

Tote bag: Longchamp
